Fires and Surrounds Covid 19 Delivery policy

The safety of both our customers and employees is paramount to us. To avoid the spread of Covid-19, we are actively following governmental guidelines with regards to social distancing and lockdown restrictions. This risk assessment is to protect all parties whilst delivering your fireplace during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Before Delivery
If you or any members of your household develop Covid-19 symptoms, you have been advised to take a Covid-19 test or are waiting for test results, please let us know and we will re-schedule your delivery for a later date.

PPE
All our drivers have the following PPE:
• Gloves
• Face Masks
• Hand Sanitiser

Before your delivery takes place, our drivers must ensure all three elements of PPE are used. Hands are to be sanitised before and after the delivery takes place (whilst parked in the van) and they must ensure that both face mask and gloves are in place before approaching your property.

Customer Interaction
We ask that both you and our drivers adhere to Governmental guidelines concerning social distancing. It is therefore essential that both parties maintain a two-meter distance at all times. Our drivers have been instructed not to accept any drinks that may be offered and not to use customers toilets. Customers must sign for all deliveries; however, our drivers are instructed not to provide pens, and we, therefore, request that customers use their own pen or that the driver take a photograph of the fireplace as proof of delivery.

Placement of Goods
Fires and Surrounds usual company policy is to deliver your fireplace to a room of your choosing and then unwrap and inspect each item. We do this to ensure that the fire surround is unwrapped correctly and that no damage is caused or is present on the fireplace. This policy has been temporarily suspended and replaced with three options, we will ask you for your preference when we call to arrange delivery:

1. Front Door Drop – Our driver meets you at your doorway, and you take the products into the house and unwrap them whilst the driver waits. Please note that the driver is only allocated 10 minutes per delivery.

2. External Building - Our driver delivers the fireplace to an exterior building such as a garage, porch, conservatory or shed. Maintaining a social distance, the driver will unwrap and check the products. The customer can then sign for the surround, or our driver will photograph the surround as proof of delivery.

3. Hallway Delivery – Our driver will place the products inside your house but cannot enter more than 3 metres from your front door. He will then unwrap the products whilst maintaining a safe social distance. The customer can then sign for the surround, or our driver will photograph the surround as proof of delivery.

Special Requirements
If these three options are not suitable for your needs, you require special arrangements, or you live in an apartment building or flat, please get in touch with us so we can discuss your requirements. Wherever possible, we aim to assist all customers to the best of our ability whilst still complying to Covid-19 restrictions.
